    we design our web pages with frames using the typical 3 frame jayout (left, top and main) for a 800x 600 screen resolution. I have noticed than for higher resolutions the overall layout shifts to the LEFT which is not pleasing esthetically. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions ( use of javascript etc) of how to center the layout in the high resolution mode, avoiding a double design (one per screen resolution). Thanks

    Hi Stavros,

    It would help here if you could give us the url of the site you are talking about so we can see it. Giving advice on something you haven't seen with your own eyes is pretty hard.

    In the mean time, have a look at my personal site - http://www.postfive.com

    This is done with frames and is worked around 800x600 but looks ok in higher resolutions too.

    Only when the designer doesn't know what he/she is doing!!

    When utilized properly frames can work well. I've not had one bad comment about my website - and many people have commented on how easy it is to navigate.

    Just use an autostretch table...

    That way your main frames content will flow to the size of the open browser window... I know that dreamweaver 4 will set them up automically for you if you choose...

    FRAMEs are CONFUSING.

    I always get confused where am I on a site. They may provide better navigation and faster page loading. But if you want to keep track of yourself using URLs, forget it.
